My son was the same way---hyper, ADD/ADHD, couldn't calm himself. I tried the medications, but my son reacted to them with delusions, became anemic and wasn't himself. I did find an all-natural supplement that works for him, and we have limited his sugar intake as well.

Have you read Janie Lee Grace's the imperfectly natural child? She has some ideas in there regarding food (apart from the sugar thing). Lots of fish oils I think. I must admit my son has aspbergers and some of her dietry ideas for adhd and add seem to help him. Not promising anything but worth a try.
Good luck!

The doctor is telling me that is a normal boy for toddlers his age jumping aroud and bouncing around and he can't tell me or run any test  to see if he does have adhd or add so until then I have to keep him calm asmuch as I can. I have 3 kids and it's hard to keep gary calm so I just let him play on video games and on his computer and where we live he just can't go outside to play because it's to close to the high way so. I go to my mothers and let him go outside to play because she lives in the country.  He was soppost of when to preschool but he didn't get to go because they put him on a waitting list. but i was hoping that when he goes to school it would calm him down some.

Jenn - take your son off all sugar. Fix him eggs, toast and bacon for breakfast and get his day going right! THEN - keep him awya from all sugars during his day. Offer him fruit!

MOST OF ALL - spend time playing with him ... race him around the block or around the house outside, etc., Then read to him - I've seen it oodles of times... spend time with your son ... the more you invest in him the calmer he will be! I PROMISE!!! Rub or tickle his back and snuggle with him while you two watch a good wholesome program or video -

Well i do not have this exact problem but, my brother had adhd pretty bad and instead of trying to yell at him to calm down my mom would disract him by doing something calm with him, taking a walk, reading a book, things like that.hope this helps
